edit /usr/share/applications/wine.desktop and change the 'Exec' line:
Exec=bash -i -c "wine %f"

I need the '-i' (interactive mode) to get bash load $HOME/.bashrc, you
can omit it if you know which script bash sources if it is in
non-interactive mode (maybe it's $HOME/.bash_profile but I'm not sure).
